HMGNs are members of the High mobility group of chromosomal proteins that help with transcription, replication, recombination, and DNA repair.

HMGNs are non-histone proteins, which associate with nucleosomes to control transcription of genes. HMGNs control transcription by altering the interaction of histone H1 with nucleosomes to maintain a decondensed chromatin structure.
